Simply put, the Puerto Rico travel industry has made a remarkable recovery from Hurricane Maria. Airlines are back, cruise passengers have returned, the hotels are open again and new ones are also making their way in the pipeline.

Travelers are returning – and if you haven’t come back to Puerto Rico yet, it’s time to plan your trip.

With this first-ever Puerto Rico Travel Awards, we wanted to celebrate Puerto Rico’s amazing comeback — and to honor the industry that means so much to the island’s economy and people.

The first-ever Puerto Rico Travel Awards celebrates the best of the destination, from hotels and airlines to the people who work so hard to make Puerto Rico the leading destination that it has become.

“Puerto Rico is such a vibrant, fascinating place to visit, and its renaissance has been spectacular to watch” said Caribbean Journal Editor and Publisher Alexander Britell. “As the world’s largest website covering Caribbean travel, we are so proud to celebrate the best of Puerto Rico’s travel industry with this first-ever Puerto Rico Travel Awards.”

Congratulations to all of the winners!
